Fort McClary at Kittery Point, Maine

Since1689 a fort of some sort has stood at this site protecting the Maine coast.

The hexagonal blockhouse replace other building in 1844.
Can you imagine living here keeping any eye on the harbor day in and day out?

This was the rifleman's house where most of the ammunition was stored.

Ready for battle

Looking through the lookout slats from inside you can see Constitution Light
in the distance.
